Stop living in the past.
Stop thinking that my past defines me.
If the last time we held a conversation was no more recent than a year ago, stop assuming you know who I am. I have had experiences that have changed me, so have you. I acknowledge them, why can’t you?
Stop making promises you will not keep.
Stop giving me false hope that you will one day show up.
People make choices and they live with those choices every day.
Good and bad. My past is there, it is a part of me. It created the person I am. I wouldn’t be sitting here as myself if none of those experiences happened.
Stop thinking of now as being the same as then.
Stop thinking of me as I was then.
